The fast pace of life today has lead to lifestyle disorders, especially heart diseases not only among the old but even the young are increasingly getting afflicted by this disease. We cannot alter the pace of our life, but we can at least eat healthy. Using a healthy variety of oil and limiting the intake of oil on a daily basis will delay heart-related complications. Rice bran oil is a healthy option for all households as it's ‘trans-fat free’.
Rice bran oil is the right oil that fits the WHO recommendation for fatty acids, which is purportedly superior to any other oil. It has the ability to reduce heart diseases as the oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, phytosterols and triterpene alcohols. Moreover it contains natural antioxidants like oryzanol, squalene, tocotrienol and tocopherol that provide other health benefits.
Unsaturated fatty acids like phytosterols, triterpene alcohols, alpha-tocopherol and tocotrienols are the main components of this oil that has the capacity to improve plasma lipid pattern in humans. As a result there is a reduction in total plasma cholesterol. The nutrition available in rice bran oil helps in countering diseases like cancer, maintaining a healthy immune system and keeps skin healthy and glowing.
